He is now hoping to run a similar fundraising effort in the coming months.
Senior sister at the unit, Janet Dickenson, said: 'The funds raised are used to take patients on holiday or group theatre trips, Christmas dinner and pantomimes. The majority of the patients are elderly, all live in North Norfolk and because of their illness and dependence on dialysis are unable generally to go away on holidays.'
